Service: Member of Salem Alliance Church where he is active in a Sunday school class and has served as small group leader. I am also a member of the AAHPERD association.
Personal: Married to an alum of Corban, Shelia (McAdams 83). "My wife loves to garden, cook, and read while I train bird dogs, so I love to bird hunt, train on a road bike, workout, and play badminton. We also love to ride our tandem bike."
What brought you to Corban? "I saw it as a chance to develop a program, to coach, and to be in a Christian environment again. Corban is the third Christian based college I have worked at and it is the atmosphere that has convinced me I chose the right place to accomplish what I set out to do when I came here. Working with other faculty and staff who have the same beliefs is truly a good thing. You will receive the same knowledge in Human Performance here as anywhere else but we will see it through the lens of Christ."
